A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by VMware Security

The last 14 months saw the largest and fastest transformation in work patterns in history.  Security and IT teams now preside over an ecosystem that is more distributed and heterogeneous than ever before–and the transformation isn’t stopping.How can you unify your security and IT teams and accelerate how they identify, prevent and respond to threats?

Digital transformation programmes advanced the equivalent of five years in five weeks. However, today, the cyberattack surface expanded to include living rooms, kitchens, home networks and personal devices. The current climate provides an attractive space for hackers who are employing a more diverse range of attacks to disrupt and extort enterprises. In fact, according to the VMware Global Security Insights Report, 76% of those surveyed said that the number of attacks faced increased over the last year, and almost 80% said that this increase was a direct result of more employees working from home.

A different approach to securing our organizations is crucial. That’s why several businesses are moving towards a ‘work from anywhere’ approach while protecting their workloads and data with VMware Security. By building in this strategy, you can look to leverage your infrastructure and control points in new ways, shifting from a reactive security posture to a position of strength. VMware also helps to seamlessly secure endpoints, workloads, clouds and networks so users have flexibility and can remain agile.

So, how can you unify your security and IT teams? How can you accelerate how your teams identify, prevent, detect and respond to threats with the right context and insights?

Join VMware and a select group of senior thought leaders to explore how you can leverage your infrastructure to secure your business.
